    Guys. I'm in ballroom. I know roughly half of my friends are gay.

    A few misconceptions;

    - For those of you using the 'G.O.D' argument - I'm not Christian. I'm an agnostic. What do you say to those who metaphorically flip the bird to Christian values? Perhaps it's an alternative culture, le gasp. Perhaps it's not /actually/ a dictat by the Almighty to be 'not gay' or 'gay'. One of my best mates is Catholic, and openly homosexual.

    - Ten percent. Yep. True.

    - It's population control. Nature uses it in other species/colonies. When the population per land mass grows too great, 'homosexual' strains are found in the individual. No, they don't have kids - look at China/India/Africa, man. That's a *good* thing.

    - It's not a choice. The people who live the way they do have a right to live that way, for the same reason you choose to live as a Conservative or Liberalist or not. I have not listened to eight guys talk me through their come-out without picking up that they are deeply, deeply unhappy not being who they are.

    And I think you'll find that anti-gay attitudes come under 'bigotry' and 'asshat-y'. And thus, I mock.

    nice speach. however you said that ten percent of the population being gay is a misconception, yet you agreed with that figure. :rolleyes:

    Urgh. Clearly I'm not awake... I meant to say, 'correcting a few misconceptions'. Either my keyboard cut it - which is likely as my laptop is new, or ... I forgot to type it. Which is likelier. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Oh, and on the subject of nitpicks - sorry - 'speech'.

    If he's openly homosexual, then he's got to look long and hard at what the Bible says about this. If you don't care for Christianity - well then that's you. Let me get this clear - are I and people like me allowed to challenge homosexuality and what people say about it without people like Whizz Kid trying to be smart? :confused:

    Do you really know what the Bible says about homosexuality? Or, for that matter, anything else? How good is your Hebrew?
    And why do you feel a need to 'challenge' homosexuality? What is challenging it anyway?

    Actually, he's intimately aware with the sections of the Bible that deal with it. As am I - I go to a Christian, private school.

    And yeah. He's read it. And decided that he's still okay. And our chaplain agrees.

    To be honest, it's neither here nor there if a Christian is gay anyway. Technically they are loved as children of God, and as God is a forgiving God who created man in HIS image anyway - then arguably he is responsible for the intricacies of humanity.

    Jesus died for the atonement of OUR sins - helllllloooooooooo!!!!!!

    AND I don't mean that from a Christian perspective, because I actually don't believe Jesus died for our sins at all, but for a Christian to argue that homosexuality leads to eternal damnation essentially contradicts the entire essence of Christianity.

    ___________

    You cannot call homosexuality a disability, it doesn't in itself actually prevent the individual or disable them from doing anything (all you fundamentalists can go whistle - gay people are still capable of sexual reproduction).
